Developing the CHARMER intervention package
In Work Package 2 we developed the CHARMER intervention package by working with key stakeholders to design the six Behaviour Change Techniques (BCTs) identified in our previous work. These six BCTs were identified to target the barriers and enablers to geriatricians and pharmacists proactively deprescribing in hospital.
We used a co-design approach with stakeholders from three NHS hospitals, including geriatricians, pharmacists, patient and public representatives and hospital staff who are likely to be involved in CHARMER implementation. Over three rounds of workshops, we developed the CHARMER intervention package.
